"Focus Shall Not Fail" as written by and Oliver Herbert Michael Bartlett....
I find not distractions live life of single mind
And failure is not inherent
For I will have what's mine
I'll struggle and sacrifice
Should I find value there
I'll not be scorned by failure
I'll not relent

Now my conscience shall dictate my way
No more apologies no more mistakes
Now solid direction has strengthened my resolve
Fear not for consequences

Fear not at all my focus shall not fail
I shall not fall and nor shall I despair

Exist no more distractions exist no more delays
Set free from inhibitions set solid on my way
Now set forth with purpose
And with a strong resolve
Fear not for consequences

Now my conscience shall dictate my way
No more apologies no more mistakes

    in flames are melodic death metal, while these guys are metalcore

    they are both extremely talented bands

    General CommentHonestly why do people have to be such haters? In Flames is an amazeing band but not my style of music of choice, i look for the more heavey/guitar baced band. Avenge Sevenfold is pretty mainstream, but they have 2 amazeing guitar players and Atreu is mainstream but puts on one of the best shows ive seen. Slipknot has an extreamly good Drummer, singer, and guitarest but i dont listen to them either. Just because you dont like a certian band's sound or the choices they make doesent make them any less talented. All that Remains is one of my faveoret bands and this is a really good song from them.. they dident fucking "ripoff" In Flames. Your all kinda retarted if you ask me...

    General CommentI think Shark hit the nail right on the head, we don't need chattin b*llocks, this song is about someone who is living his life and doesnt give a sh*t who gets in his way because he will crush them without remorse, nothing will stand in his way as he climbs to the top of HIS mountin.

    General CommentThe song meaning is pretty obvious. Getting through things by staying to what you hold true and fighting on.

    Also, to all of you who think Wikipedia is a course to use for finding those things out, don't want to hear it. Wikipedia is def. not the source to use to find such info out. Use a realiable source for a change, so this argument can be of real stature (though it should not have started in the first place).

    General CommentAlright. So you people seem to think that metalcore, and melodic shtuff.... THESE GENRES WERE ALL CREATED AFTER OTHER GENRES, CONTRIBUTED BY OTHER GENRES, CREATED BY PEOPLE WHO, MAY VERY WELL, THINK IN A WAY FUCKING DIFFERENT WAY THEN YOU. So is there a real meaning to "melodic death metal", or is it an opinion based ....opinion. I mean COME ON. Haven't you guys ever played telephone?

    General CommentThis song is friggen amazing. it was awesome when they did it live. philip labonte is really hot. fyi. this song is pretty self explanitory though, unless you want to pry it apart, i find that with songs like this, it loses something when you do that.
